ECMA 2010 fan’s choice vot­ing now open

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT -

SYD­NEY — As the 2010 East Coast Mu­sic Awards, Fes­ti­val and Con­fer­ence ap­proaches, mu­sic fans can have their say by vot­ing on a pair of fan’s choice awards.

The Cape Bre­ton Credit Unions fan’s choice artist/group of the year award will be se­lected from all ECMA 2010 mu­sic award nom­i­nees, and the Bell Aliant fan’s choice video of the year award will be cho­sen from all video of the year sub­mis­sions.

Th­ese awards are the only ECMAs voted on by the pub­lic, and fans have un­til March 5 at mid­night (AT) to cast their vote on­line at www.bel­laliant.net/ecma or www.ecma.com. Only one vote per com­puter will be counted.

Win­ners of the two fan’s choice awards will be an­nounced March 7 dur­ing the ECMA 2010 awards gala at Cen­tre 200. The gala will be shown world­wide via web broad­cast at www.bel­laliant.net/ecma.

“ Th­ese fan’s choice awards al­low all fans of East Coast mu­sic to be an ac­tive par­tic­i­pant in our big­gest night of the year,” said Su Hutchin­son, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the East Coast Mu­sic As­so­ci­a­tion. “ Th­ese are the awards that artists truly cher­ish, be­cause they are based on the re­spect and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the fans they serve. Every­one can make their voice heard through the on­line vot­ing process and help us de­ter­mine th­ese de­serv­ing win­ners.”

ECMA of­fi­cials note that the fan’s choice awards are not re­plac­ing sim­i­lar en­ter­tainer and video of the year cat­e­gories, as voted on by the ECMA mem­ber­ship.

Gala awards tick­ets are on sale at the Cen­tre 200 box of­fice, or on­line through www.reser­vat­ech.net or www.tick­et­pro.ca.
